Michigan vs Indiana Prediction & Pick

Michigan is doing everything it can to get back into the NCAA Tournament bubble conversation and a home win against a ranked team would obviously be a boost. The Wolverines are 10-3 at home this season with an average scoring margin of +9.0. Playing at the Crisler Center certainly ups their game.

Indiana has faltered on the road at times this season as it averages over 12.0 less points per game and shoots at a rate of 8.0% less than it does in home games. The Hoosiers thrive when Jackson-Davis can assert himself down low, but that is going not going to be easy with Dickinson around.

Indiana has lost five of its last six away games against Michigan, so fade the Hoosiers in a close one.

Final Score Prediction: Michigan: 76 | Indiana: 74

Michigan vs Indiana Best Bet

Conference games can go either way, which makes avoiding the spread a good idea here. Backing the over comes with much more value considering it is a bet that has cashed in four of the last six games between Indiana and Michigan. Both of these teams are averaging over 74.0 points per game.

The total has hit the over in four of the Wolverines' last five games overall and in 12 of their last 18 games against a Big Ten opponent. The over has cashed in five of the Hoosiers' last seven games on a Saturday, too. Trust the trends and root for points when these powerhouse programs fight it out.

Bet: Over 145.5 Points (-110)
